Dana White Praises Referee 'Big' John McCarthy Following UFC on Fox 9
Posted by Jeffrey Harris on 12.15.2013



During a post-fight media scrum for UFC on Fox 9, UFC President Dana White spoke with reporters and praised referee John McCarthy and also Herb Dean. Below are some highlights.

White praising John McCarthy: "John McCarthy and I might have had our moments throughout the years, but I'll tell you what I love about McCarthy, and it happened again tonight. When John is in that octagon, he is in absolute and total control."

White on McCarthy and Herb Dean being allowed to referee on back-to-back fights: "I like how they had McCarthy and Dean going back-to-back on some fights. You know who the good referees are. You know who they are. Do it. Put the right guys in there. It makes sense. They're not working too much. They're in there moving around and they're watching."

White on how McCarthy handled the headbutt in the Lauzon/Danzig fight: "Lauzon headbutted (his opponent Mac Danzig), and he stopped the fight and said, ‘Watch your head.' Everybody in the arena knew there was a headbutt, and everybody watching on TV knew it was stopped and there was a warning for a headbutt. That's what you do. When you're the ref, you're in control and you're in charge. There are other people who ref that are just completely not in charge when they're in there, and they make calls out of the f—ing blue. They don't warn people, and if they do, they don't let everyone know they've been warned."

White on the referee work of McCarthy and Dean: "Are [McCarthy and Dean] perfect? Are they going to make mistakes? Sometimes they are. But it's hard to argue that they're the best in there."
